Divorce can be an incredibly confusing time, especially because each divorce
is different. Finances, children, and the overall relationship between
two people differs from case to case, which is why it can feel overwhelming
trying to find solid answers regarding your divorce. Going into this process
being as prepared as possible is the only way to truly combat any difficulties
which may arise along the way.
If the end of your marriage is impending, or if you are currently in the
midst of pursuing a divorce, you need to make sure you are prepared in
any event. So many things can go wrong, even if you and your ex-spouse
as remotely amicable.
The following are steps to take in the event of divorce:
- Consult a Daytona Beach family lawyer – This is the most important
step to take to protect yourself in every aspect. Whether you are concerned
about assets, property, or your children, we at Buckmaster & Elizey
can help advise you on your best course of action. Going in blindly simply
isn’t an option.
- Copy documents – Keep a copy of any and all important documents,
because you never know when you will need to show proof on your end. Finances
are one of the biggest points of contention in a divorce, which is why
you need to keep a copy of all tax returns, bank statements, investment
statements, retirement account statements, life insurance policies, mortgage
documents, financial statements, credit card statements, wills, Social
Security statements, and more.
- Maintain routine – If you have children, it is especially important
you keep their routine as consistent as possible. This transition will
be particularly difficult for them, and you and your ex-spouse still need
to maintain somewhat of a comfortable balance in their lives. Their entire
family structure is crumbling--make it as easy as possible.
